RAM is fast enough for me. Maybe I wasn't clear before or something. I was pretty exhausted when I started this thread.

My code is indeed close to 4MB in size, and most of that is beyond my control. For example, probably the lion's share of my available space is taken up by the ESP-IDF's bluetooth stack (they don't let you just include BLE even though that's all i use) and then the silly Adafruit graphics library, which is just garbage and includes all kinds of code for different display adapters i'll never use, but is the only game in town for doing rich, relatively well tested graphics on the arduino framework against an RA8875 controller.

In fact, were it not for all the dependencies my code wouldn't be that big.

I could use extra flash theoretically but i can't put code on it. the ESP32 just doesn't let you extend its flash size as seamlessly as you can its RAM. The extra flash would register as external, not integrated..
